Good morning everyone! It is Camilla here today, showing you two boxes I made for baptism. One for a girl and the other for a baby boy. I have decorated the outside and the inside of the boxes with papers from the lovely Vintage Baby collection.

I have cut out all the parts using the Vintage Baby, except from the yellow colour, here I have used a sheet from the Vintage Spring Basics.

The dies used are from Magnolia, and a DooHickey Box. The text is from Stempelglede.

As you can see I have used the strip on the bottom of the MajaDesign pattern papers, and placed it around the top of the box (BABY BABY..).

To make the box I have cut out a Kraft Cardstock measuring 27 x 27 cm. Then I have folded it at 9 cm, 9 cm and 9 cm. And cut it out like you see under.

The vanilla bazzill papers are cut out 8,5 cm x 8,5 cm. Then the pattern papers 8 x 8 cm. I have inked the edges and sewed them together.

In the midle of the box I have placed a image that I have painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have glued it on a strip of plastic, and then bend it a bit at the end and glued it to the bottom of the box. It almost looks like the baby is flying. I have also cut out two clouds with Maja papers, and fastend them the same way.

At the bottom of the box I have also added some Sisal gras, and flowers from WOC.

The baby boy box are made the same way. Also here I have added a strip from the gorgeous Maja papers on the top of the box.

Here is another image, also from Magnolia, which I have coloured with Distresses.

The inside is decorated with a folder with a paper to write a greeting on. And also a pocket to put the gift in (money).

Here is a close up of the image. Also he is “flying”, as he is fasten to a plastic strip.

Text from Stempelglede: Wish you all the best for the future. I just love the cute paper behind the text.

It was really fun making the two boxes.

Thank you so much visiting the MajaDesign blog!

With love,

Hi everyone! I am back with a frame card I have made. I hope you all are fine<3

I have used papers from both collections above for this card. The frame is coverd with a sheet from Denim & Friends, but the rest I have used are from the Little Street Cafe Collection.

I wanted to capture this sweet Tilda out walking outside late at night. It is a starry and bright sky, and there are some fireworks as she walkes along the lane.

Therefore I found this lovely blue spotted paper from Denim & Friends, for the back. And it fittet so nicely with the Little Street Papers, which I have used to decorate a whole scene.

All the cut outs are made with dies from Magnolia.

White spots here and there are made with white Gesso. It gives the card a touch of shabby look.

The flowers are also made with Maja papers. Behind them I have put some Sissal gras.

The image is painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. Soft colours to match the papers.

The depth of the card/frame is one cm. And I have taken some photos of it laying down, to give you a better view of it.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.

With love,

Baby girl

Hi everyone! Here is a card with a box I made for a babtism last weekend. It was so fun making the box, cutting out all the small parts with Maja Papers. I have used the cutest papers from the Vintage Baby Collection.

Here is a closer look on the baby clothing hanging there. I have used three different papers from the collection.

Also the papers clips are made with papers. I have added some frantage on to different parts of the papers.

The gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have added a butterfly on the large flower. The butterfly is cut out from a paper sheet from Vintage Spring Basics. The text is written on my computer, and printed out on some thicker paper. The text “Til Dåpsbarnet” is stamped with a stamp from Stempelglede.

The box i measuring 14 x 15 cm. And is 2 cm width.

The ribbon used are also from WOC. Open the box, and you will find a baby girl inside. Here is a card matching the box.

I have used the same papers. And also similar embellishments.

 

The image is from Magnolia, as the dies used. And it is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Hope you got some inspiration today! Thank you for visting the MajaDesign blog.

With love,

Hello Spring!

Hi everyone! I hope you and your families are ok in this strange and unreal days. We are staying positive and like everyone else, we can’t wait till this is over. Strangley enough this situation is taking more energy from me than I thought, and I haven’t manage to make many cards. But as I have some dates to post here on the blog, I have made this Spring card with some gorgeous MajaDesign Vintage Spring Basics papers.

I have cut out the cute bird house with some yellow Spring papers. The white you see here and there is white Gesso that I have painted with a flat broad brush.

Also the small butterflies are cut out from the gorgeous papers. There are sheets in the collection that are covered with butterflies, that you can cut our and put them on your creations.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The image is and many of the dies are from Magnolia. I have painted the image with Distress Ink re-inkers and Markers. I use from 2-3 hours painting one image. So it is not done in a sweep!

I have painted the image in pink, but I didn’t want to make a pink card. So I have toned it a bit down, using more yellow and beige papers from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. Only the feathers I have cut out are pink.

I hope you like my card! Thank you for visiting the MajaDesign blog today.

With love,

Hi there Maja fans! I hope you all are fine in this unsurreal times. The corona virus has hit Norway hard, but also the rest of the world. I am thinking of card making friends in Italy and Spain now. I hope you are all alright. I am isolating myself at home mostly of the time, as I am lucky to be able to have a home office. For today I have a heart shaped card to show you. I did the colouring with Distresses some time ago, but have put it together the last days. I hope you like it, and know that my heart is with you.

The papers used are from the lovely Little Street Cafe Collection. I will show you which ones at the end of this post.

The image and dies used are from Magnolia. Also the heart die I have used to make the shape of the card.

I have also used the Maja papers to make the flowers. They are cut out with dies, and put together to a beautiful Maja flower.

Under is a close up of more Maja flowers.

Here are the papers used:

Take care everyone!

With love,
